By 2020, George W. Bush Will Be Psychically Crashing Trains And Airliners

Look, we all know that the disintegration of the Middle East into savage, chaotic, theocratic hellholes is the fault of George W. Bush and his invasion of Iraq. Everything we're seeing today, from the failed state of Libya to Boko Haram in Nigeria to the recent bombings in Brussels is derived from Bush's imperialism.

But did you ever stop to think about the direction things are going and project it into the future? Dig this.

The farther away you get from W's presidency, the more pronounced his impact becomes. In just a few, short years out of office, he's managed to increase deaths from terrorism tenfold! The man is like one of those rapidly-evolving mutant super villains from a comic book. Just what will things be like in 2020? It boggles the mind.

Don't say you weren't warned.

The Global Terrorism Database that is linked to under that graphic is a really interesting site. After browsing around on it for a bit, it becomes abundantly clear that terrorism in Europe and North America is barely a drop in the bucket, and that almost all of that activity is in the Middle East, northern Africa, and southern Asia.

Basically, World War III appears to have started, and is covering most of that area. This is a different sort of war than WWI or II, because it is being fought mostly with relatively minimal weapons and through small attacks rather than pitched battles, but it is a war nevertheless. It looks to me like any terrorism outside of that region is just attempts by various parties to influence the big world powers into getting mixed up in something that they would otherwise probably ignore.

My concern is that the US will get sucked into it, not in support of allies of our own choosing, but with "allies" that we get stampeded into supporting in knee-jerk retailation to terrorist attacks. We need to choose our allies very, very carefully.
